The first day of the new year. A blank canvas looked upon with hope and faith that it will be a better year than 2013 was for my family. I actually felt different this morning when I came downstairs after sleeping in like a lazy old bear. The sense of a new era was in the Manorand the absolute feeling that last year was firmly in the past.
I have always heard that you should do on New Year's Day the things you want to do all year long. So off we went today, indulging my superstitious self. I took my Mom to the store, spending time with her this morning. The Spouse and I had lunch out together today and we shopped for gardening supplies. I made a paint purchase in the art supply store and came home to dabble some color on a canvas. Potted a young plant and prepped some pots for spring planting.
Now my collards and black-eyed peas are simmering on the range and the cornbread is ready to be mixed and baked. A good fire going in the stone fireplace and I am ready to get some serious chilling time this evening.
So far, so good......
